This newly refurbished hotel inside Volcanoes National Park was terrific! The staff was outstanding, the food was surprisingly great, and the location is spectacular--right on the edge of the caldera. The historic hotel is well maintained and has been updated with comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, robes, slippers, a great turndown cookie and hot chocolate and coffee. They even pass out fresh baked cookies in the early evening-- a nice touch!
The dinner and breakfast were a true surprise. The dinner in the caldera side dining room served amazingly creative and tasty cuisine that would have been welcomed at our 5 star hotel. The server was outstanding and everyone has just the right, authentic sense of Aloha.
The hotels isn't fancy -- this is a lodge. But what a great place to serve as your base while you explore this fascinating park! It also is a great choice to stay 1 or 2 nights so you don't have to have the nightmare drive back to your hotel which is much further away than you ever might have imagined.
One tip-- I'd end my big island visit here and fly out of Hilo to your next stop.
Aloha and enjoy!
